That's a very important question, when the SDK will be released?
It's very important for me too, knowing that Mavic Air 2 users had to wait 9 months.

I believe DJI will stop releasing SDK support for all cheap and non-professional drones. It would be logical.

I think MA2 and Mini2 had SDK, so Air 2S should have it too. It's definitely not "cheap".
The question is, will DJI confirm it and provide any informations what's the expected time to release it?

Compared to professional products, Mini 2 and Air 2s are cheap. Look at the prices of the Inspire 2 and Phantom 4 Pro v2.

Of course, I'm not comparing A2s to professional drones, like Inspire. But, in my country at least, P4P v2 price is only 150 euro higher than A2S FMC. I'm not comparing drones and the value of the combo kit, I'm just saying the P4P v2 is within the price range of an advanced amateur.
I mean, for an upgraded MA2, the price difference is significant (and after reading some revies I know many people agree with me). So it would be strange if it didn't get at least the same functionality (SDK).
In the case of the MA2, DJI said they will release SDK in a few months - here they don't even reply, like with Mini2. So with the significantly higher price they added something, but I have a feeling they took something away too.
I'm holding off on buying until I'm sure, and it's just good to know that if someone cares about, for example, more advanced hyperlapse, they may be disappointed. Just like many people replacing the Mini with the Mini 2.
The only thing I expect is just DJI support saying "yes, we'll release SDK in x months"  or "no plans for SDK". that would be taking seriously a customer who wants to spend 1400 euros for a drone.

Well, your drone sellers make money) The usual price for the new Air 2S is 999$, for the new Phantom 4 Pro v2 - 1599$. After the imposition of US sanctions against DJI, it had some problems with its employees. So they probably have to re-prioritize SDK support.

Just received answer: "DJI Air 2S does not support the SDK at this moment, please keep an eye to the official news whether it will be developed later."
This means, Air 2s is not a simple upgrade for MA2 - it's one step forward, and one step backward.

That and nothing is the same.

It does not make any sense that 2 months ago they support the Mavic Air 2 and the Mavic Mini, and now that they do not support the Air 2S (or Mini 2). I hope, and truly believe, that they will support both of it. The key is knowing when.

I bought an MA2 in February and as soon as I heard the rumors, I returned it to buy the A2S. But without an SDK, I don't know if I'll buy any.

I think it's safe to assume that many Mini 2 buyers who upgraded from the Mini 1 did so with the full expectation that the 3rd party apps they were using with the Mini 1 would be supported on the Mini 2 before too much time had elapsed, given that the Mini 2 was very explicitly an upgrade directly from the Mini 1. If the SDK required for those apps to work does not appear, there will be a significant crowd of pretty upset Mini 2 buyers, I suspect.

Yeah and air 2S and mavic air 2 is almost identical at 95% only the camera are different.

Don't know why it's not already released.

In "SDK for mini 2" discussion, they have shared an email from Luce Lio (DJI) in which he says that the mini 2 will be supported by the SDK in 5.0 version, although he doesn't say when.

Air 2S may be supported as well.
